Affordable solar systems and battery storage is now a reality for many with government schemes and rebates. The more people to change to these systems the more affordable they become. Plus the technology is advancing rapidly, which gives us more options and better quality products to choose from.
Setting up an Off Grid home requires a list of essential items.
- Water Capture
- Safe Place to Live in
- Food to Eat and Food Storage
- Warmth or Cooling – depending on where you live
Home built set up may save money but ensuring it is safe should be a priority.
Power is an important one, and this will depend on how much power you require and how much you can afford to spend.
Efficient storage of the energy you require for use at night or on overcast days is paramount to ensure you don’t lose food through spoilage and you have the power you require when you need it.
